Diego hails ‘perfect’ Juve

Posted on 19/02/2010


Juventus playmaker Diego believes his side played the perfect game last night as they beat Ajax 2-1 in the Europa League.

The Bianconeri came back from behind in Amsterdam thanks to a brace from Brazilian striker Amauri.

Speaking to UEFA.com, Diego said: “Ajax have a very good team and the first chance they had, they scored, but we were very intelligent, and Amauri was perfect.

“Two or three chances and two beautiful goals – it was perfect for us.

“It was really hard. Ajax are a really strong team, especially at home, but we played very well. The Coach was really intelligent.

“Ajax put one against one with me so it was hard to play in midfield, but that means there’s more space for other players.

“It’s not important how many chances you create but when you have a chance, you must score. That was the secret for us.”

Finally Diego reserved special praise for Alessandro Del Piero, the Juventus captain who inspired his team to victory.

“He’s been great in our last two games and that’s really important for us. When he plays well, it is better for everybody.”
